Peaceful and serene are two words that you would not normally associate with Clacton on Sea but on this particular evening it most certainly was, the beaches, pier and proms were deserted.

Waxing Gibbous Moon



I thought I'd give my old Canon 20D an outing, instead of leaving it languishing at the back of the cupboard for another 5 or so years, awesome little camera although a bit dated now, but you can still capture some great images with it.
ISO 400 f8 @ 1/125.
